Hey So-Cal drifters!
Quick question...

How far would all of you be willing to drive to a sick ass track? We're speaking of a 5th gear drift track!

Your input would be greatly appreciated.
:)

If I can actually practice on it and not pay a G for the entrance, then that would be BAD ASS!!!

well a lot of people are willing to drive 2-3 hours for willow springs..

some even more like guys from norcal coming for track days at willow springs or people going to buttonwillow.

I think as long as the track is nice and the entrance fee isn't outrageous people would be willing to go because it's another "new" track... but then again, with alot of these pay by the hour drift events happening, it might be tougher..

Will this be an actual course? New course? Out in the dessert like willow? I'd be down to drive about 100 miles. 5th gear is ridiculous though. Top of 3rd would be perfect I think.

i have to agree im down for top of third. but feel a bit sketchy anything higher than that.

and tires will be a major issue. how will the asphault be. i did three runs on el toros 3rd gear course and my tires ripped to shreds. so if its too far,(like anything more than and hour) and im only gona get a cupel runs in one each set of tires. i think i would have to pass. i dont got that kind of money to be throwing around like that, as much fun as it maybe, i just cant afford it. and i doubt to many of us can

06-04-2009, 01:36 PM
^^^^ as would i. only thing that is worth driving more than an hour for is willow srpings. by far best track around here.

but like riley said, even if its a parkign lot, ppl will come. u gota remember that there aint to many ppl left hit up the streets anymore( but my ass aint never leavin the streets!!!!! street driftin for life lol!!). and if ppl can get good seat time undisturbed by the cops, they r most likely gona take it, even if its just a parking lot.

I've done 4th gear entry at El Toro and my car feels like its gonna fall apart just like a lot of people's would.

So keep it real expectations that not many people would be able to do 5th gear entry let alone have the skills to do it in the first place.

You'd have so many crashes it would be stupid.

karl wasabi
06-04-2009, 03:55 PM
A course with multiple layouts, or the ability to change the layout would be awesome too. Kinda like the Ebisu courses.

I'd actually prefer a lower speed course that's technical than just a flat out balls to the wall manji course like El Torro.

I would LOVE to drive on the Meihan Circuit. Something like that would be TIGHT!!!

Agreed, flow and elevation changes would almost be mandatory to make it worth a considerable drive. Parking lot?! LOL!!! HEEEELLLL NO! There are enough of those already.

And very true...it doesn't take much for people to drive out to somewhere to legally drift.

Wellll if there was a track that had 5th gear capabilities, we wouldn't let everybody and their mom's drive on it. There would be some sort of qualification to drive on that course.

Thunder Hill is the only track that meets everything talked about here. 4th entries, drop to wide open third, then monji up hill transition blind at the top and drop down the back side back into third with your balls shriveled up and a white knuckle grip on the steering wheel. Its an amazing track........ only like 10 hour drive from sd too! haha

and we dont have a location for any of this nonsense. like most people have already stated, who will actually drive a fifth gear track? not the question of how, but WHY? el toro is fun as shit and thats only 3rd/4th gear.
ya, you can put your car in fifth and initiate all day on any track but does that mean your sliding in 5th gear?

I know its just drifting.
If anyone does its me, shits just a hobby, not my life like some people assume cause im at the track all the time.

And like usual, I have no problem vocalizing what I think in public. Im not the only one that thinks that way. I hear it ALOT. People are just to scared to say it feels kinda shitty and they feel taken advantage of. They are scared of being singled out cause Drifting is there life.

And we are FORCED to tandem with people we dont know. At the end of the night, its a big pile up of people that have never driven together. Its a big dice roll who is gonna spin when and have another 6 cars right behind them on a 30' wide track.
Part of the reason I dont come out there and risk it that much.

Im just saying, and i think you know what i mean about being sent with some random dudes that are all over.
(of course those 55 series sucked and i was all over, BUT didnt ever spin!)


I will say the plus side of Adams is there is no tire ware there. or almost none, so thats a big plus, especially for younger guys saving money on tires and just trying to get down drifting.

LadyZ,- You need to realize that almost none of the Adams drivers can do a 3/4 gear course, lol.
So getting drivers for 5th gear!!!!
your gonna have to have the SD guys show, and all the better drivers from Naoki, 626/Side2Side/Rad/drift cloab,

Cause it takes alot more tires and money for those speeds. no used tires there!, lol.

Plus, your 5th gear is 3rd for my SOHC unless you give me a mile run-up, lmao!

4th gear in SOHC is doable, I did that in El toro. I have done a lot of drifting in 3/4 gear in many different cars in race tracks here and outside the country, I go to Adams and I think Adams is a good place to practice the lines for a lot of guys who only normally go balls out but running bad lines in forgiving tracks like HTM or Balcony.

So keep the input coming. And stop going off topic!

Adam's and Inland Drift are both fine places to drive. I remember the days when we were thankful to even have a place to drive legally. And nobody forces anyone to drive tandems. Drifting period is not a cheap sport. By involving yourself in the sport you take the risk of crashing.

I think your confused. Maybe you just do big donuts. I personally try and scrape my bumper off on the K rail and hit all the proper clipping points.
If you go there and do big donuts, then yeah, your not getting it.
try and put some actual lines together.

And heres the part that will blow your mind.......

You can change the lines part way through the day to continue to challenge yourself incase top of 2nd, scraping a K-rail isnt enough for you.
you can also have to manji switch mack at high speed towards the K rail too.
yeah, kinds like a mini Irwindale.

but hey, you keep killin that low 2nd gear at Adams DK, lmao!!!!:w00t:

that touched my heart =] <3
Mine too.
LadiiZ,
....go drive Tandem before you talk about how people should be dealing with it.

And new courses and tracks are definatly a big plus. If you can put one together, then thankyou from the entire drift community. we are putting our input on "5th" gear tracks in.

alright alright ladies enough nonsense. Every venue out in socal has PLENTY of things for ppl to learn from. and as a driver ill try them all to progress and get better wether its a parking lot, kart track or streets of willow!

everyone really does need to be thankful that we have 2 close venues thats support us weekly. i hope we can move forward and not backwards from this point.

Mine too.
LadiiZ,
....go drive Tandem before you talk about how people should be dealing with it.

And new courses and tracks are definatly a big plus. If you can put one together, then thankyou from the entire drift community. we are putting our input on "5th" gear tracks in.

I'm not talking about how people should be dealing with it. I don't think I need to drive to know the risks of drifting. It's pretty obvious when you're doing an 11 car tandem that there's plenty of things that could go wrong at any moment. I'm sure you know that. All I was stating is that Adam's doesn't force any driver's to drive tandem. SoOoo yeh..

I think your confused. Maybe you just do big donuts. I personally try and scrape my bumper off on the K rail and hit all the proper clipping points.
If you go there and do big donuts, then yeah, your not getting it.
try and put some actual lines together.

And heres the part that will blow your mind.......

You can change the lines part way through the day to continue to challenge yourself incase top of 2nd, scraping a K-rail isnt enough for you.
you can also have to manji switch mack at high speed towards the K rail too.
yeah, kinds like a mini Irwindale.

but hey, you keep killin that low 2nd gear at Adams DK, lmao!!!!:w00t:


Yeah adams may be a second gear track, but its alot harder to connect multiple switching turns with elevation changes and the track has different configurations aswell, and when they cant change it anymore they run it backwards and it all new again, look both tracks are good for different things, adams teaches you more technical while perris teaches the speed, but the thing is even in D1 the fastest part is the entry then they slow down, like at long beach, entry speed was 91 mph but then the track average was 38mph, the way i see it is who cares if you can enter at 90 if you cant connect the rest of the track once it slows down, im not saying perris is bad, anywhere you can drift legally is a amazing thing and should continue, i just think people should quit talking crap and just have fun.

oh and if adams track is sooo bad, why does calvin won, sam hubenette and other pros show up and talk about how great it is? hmm now lets see the pros like it but new beginers dont....yup must be the track thats bad, it couldnt possibly be the drivers.

thats not my point, i dont care how many pros show up, my point is that if professional drivers are saying its a great fun track, then why would anyone listen to a bunch of whining noobs saying its crappy, cause honestly ill take the word of a pro over any street driver out there. mainly my point is not one is better then the other, my point is people need to quit talking crap on one or the other. see im not talking crap about the track, im talking about the ignorant people who say adams is crappy because they think they are the next "DK", so thank YOU come again.

Man, you confusing yourself, the pro's came because of the crowd, they will come anywhere as long as the track have a good crowd, not only because of the track.
and you said the parking lot track is not good, now you notice recent D1GP at Anaheim was on parking lot! El toro is on huge skid pad ex airport. So my suggestion is now get Tylenol, have good sleep so you're not confused anymore...lol

Alright, I think you should stop.

You started talking negatively about the lake perris course layout, remember.

Not sure you know much about sports and being sponsored. But the pro's are coming out to the track as a "Demo", to support thier sponsors and thier needs. Of course they will say the track is great, like they do any track. Thats what professionals do.
And how many weeks in a row are they there??

Like i think my first post said. Out there, you're caught up in your own Adams track hype.
Its like a high school out there with the cool crowd.
But guess what, when you graduate, you gotta go out there into the real world and all that ,"who's cool at your high school", dont mean shit.
So live it up out there at Adams, cause your somebody out there.
Try not to graduate from Adams!
Stay there as long as you can freshman!
Dont venture out onto another track, cause no one knows you,.............oops, I meant dont venture out onto another track cause there not as good as Adams!
YEAH!!
RIGHT ON BRO!!

I personally run almost every track in SoCal.

But why dont you stay out there, its prolly the best and most technical course around.


And Riley, Im sorry man. I know your difusing the situation. But you know I really dont care and I let my opinion hang out there.
I love you too, no homo, But some of the people you got out there are so confused it just baffles me. They need to venture out of there area code.

Let me remind you what you wrote.

"ha ha"
"i cant believe that people are so effin retarded, do you actually believe that perris is better then adams? its a big effin parking lot, no technical at all, if you can 180 in a parking lot, you can drift at perris, now adams requires actualy driving skill, and people just talk shit about it because THEY DONT HAVE THE SKILL TO HANDLE IT AKA YOU SUCK! now about a new track, if its technical and not a millon mile away ill drive there but im not driving to 29 palms for a parking lot, i can find that anywhere"

So now you remember who's talk shit about who.

ericcastro
06-11-2009, 01:31 PM
I will say the plus side of Adams is there is no tire ware there. or almost none, so thats a big plus, especially for younger guys saving money on tires and just trying to get down drifting.


quoting myself :)

Im not planning on the car staying on the streets for more than 3 more months.
so I may go with metal collar's, but i dont like it too stiff.

We here on Zilvia have enough "fantasy" threads.
And enough, "what im gonna do" threads.

The thoughts are much appriciated. And you wanting to help the drift community. But the best thing for it is to let it be for a bit.
Last year we saw so many tracks and event holders, that people started having a hard time filing 6 spots.
so lets just let all these new tracks and returning tracks ride for a minute. Lets see how WSIR works with the couple guys trying to work within the new insurence rules.

And then if the events are still over flowing, lets look into opening another venue.

personally i would love to see it in the san diego/tamecula area

it needs to be technical and realistic and have elevation changes something that would be more of a bottom of 4th top of 3rd kinda track. you need to incorperate a skid pad for beginners. you need to think out side of a "hey i want a drift land in my backyard" and into "hey i want to build a multifuction race track that EVERY ONE can enjoy". You need to think about motorcyclist, grip drivers, time attackers, gymkhana, go-karters, bicyclist. that way you are constantly doing business despite automotive trends. shit even build a drag strip, and a dirt track.... or even a bmx/moto cross track..

I got an Idea, how about..

( If you are actually serious about making a new place) Instead of making this goliath super high speed drift madness, why not find some empty ass land like those vast fields in Beaumont and replicate a real Japan circuit. Or put all the good parts of all kinds of tracks into one.

*Just watch videos of Nikko, Bihoku, Meihan, YZ, Sekia Hills, Mobara, Honjo, and all of the Ebisu courses. They're all not the fastest shit out there, but I bet they're all super great to drive.

*3rd gear entry, variety of turns to link, walls, elevation changes or hills..

All the cool J ciruits share these factors in their tracks. I can bet my junky 2 toned heap of poop in the garage that the reason some Japan drifters are so good is because of the tracks they practice on. If you wan't inspiration or ideas.. You're doing it wrong.

It's as easy as watching youtube. :wan:

That would be the absolute shit! Where ever it's going to be if it's like that it would be crazy. Hold any event you want for any level of whatever. Sky is the limit girl.

I would take out foolish.
Im sure she has good intentions.

But if she wasn't a girl, and was just some dude with a couple hundred post, this thread would have gone way different.

I have noticed that Zilvia is full of Pussies, and I am looked at as some sort of gnarley asshole cause i state facts and truths.
This thread proves it. Bunch of pussies afraid to speak up, and me singled out somehow.

Its alright though. Just wait for the rep system to come back :2f2f:

You can be foolish and have good intentions.

You're right though, I wouldn't have been as nice if it was just some semi-regular dude.

Yes I do.

If the resources needed to do this were really available I feel that slumming it on Zilvia would not be a necessity to design.

I hope you make me a fool, but that's all I have to say.

Fuk the rep system.
The only real thing wrong with this thread is how negative most people INSTANTLY become. Who cares if it's a pipe dream! You never know who may be watching any of these threads. Even though it's highly unlikely somebody with an assload of money or influence could be looking for a pet project. If it was me I don't know that I'd want to provide a track for such a negative and unjustly elitist crowd.
Don't like it? I don't care. It's my opinion.
If you can't contribute in a constructive manner then stop wastin YOURS and everyone else's time by spewing crap. If you don't like the topic IGNORE IT.

^^ I agree.

I, personally don't think anyone is getting singled-out for any of their opinions. Like a said before, I was looking for some INPUT.

I never said, "hey I AM going to build a track what would ya'll like"?
nor did I say "Just curious what you guys think of this and that?"

All I asked was, how far would you people (drivers), be willing to drive to a sick ass track, IF it were to come about. Simple question, simple answer.

Okie dokie?

And I'm sorry for being a girl! Jeeeeze. Honestly, I don't care to have special treatment from anyone because of it. Especially on the forums.
We should all be equal Zilvians...riiight?

Anywayyyyys. Chill out everyone. I don't need to close the thread, just answer the freakin' question, and we'll be straight! Coo?

Firstly, you DON'T know.

Please don't state things that aren't facts.

And obviously, the reason I posted the thread had nothing to do with the design of the track, it had to do with the location of it.

Reeeeead.

you should know how much of a waste the "pipe dream' threads are. you've been here long enough.

But if were gonna have one, then lets actually make one that states, "drift track pipe dream thread".
that would be interesting.
think it goes in offtopic, since this is a s chassis forum though.

Eric I can somewhat agree. However, on rare occasion pipe dreams can become reality. Not saying this thread is going anywhere but at least it shows that some are still optimistic. It just sucks when 90% of the responses are negative and some outright inflamatory.

Off topic? Maybe but it does have to do with "skilled driving" and is track related.

I for one encourage ANY new venues no matter how near or far from me they are. It will only benefit drivers to have a greater number and variety of places to practice and have fun. I'll go wherever if I feel it will be worth it. As it is right now I'm no less than 100 miles from ANY of the current venues. Hopefully someday I'll be able to attend regular events not so far away. But that will take a "dreamer" to make it a reality.

Like I stated earlier.
there are only so many "drifters" that can support the venues. As is, the venues are barely making it.
Its not like one will close either.
Its gonna be a couple that are gonna shut down at once.
We have already seen a number of organizations close down this last year.
And the year before that we had 2 or more events every weekend because so many organizers wanted to get involved.

thats why i stated to just let the existing venues survive for now, and lets see what happens. people need to look at the bigger picture, not just the philosophy that more tracks atomatically mean better.

Its like indian gaming casinos. one pops up and survives, 2 maybe, any more than that in the area and they all work against each other and all end up closing down.

I agree that we don't need another dozen parking lot "drift tracks". It would definitely dilute. The success of those that already exist.
I would definitely encourage the planning and development of another fully fledged Race Track somewhere between Los Angeles and
San Diego or between Ventura and San Francisco. Drifting by itself will not sustain a real track so it would have to be a legitimate one
which could be utilized by all forms of road based motorsports. Its a huge undertaking and involves more than most people ever imagine
but its good that it at least gets brought up. And there's no reason that it shouldn't or can't be discussed without hostility or massive
amounts of negativity. You just never know when the right person might be paying attention to the hopes and dreams of those willing to
express them.

ive got a 5th gear drift course near me, its called I-695 there is also , I-95, 295,195 895,395

point is, i have to agree with some of the other comments, if you are going to do this hooray awesome, but it would be in the best interest of the course, not to be designed as soley a drift course, but model it after some of the best time attack and auto x tracks in the world.

if you design a track for auto x and time attack than it can very easily be used for drifting and motorcycling as well.

as far as 5th gear drifts, go take an on ramp from one highway to another, on the east coast i really like 695 onto 95, but yeah take it as fast as you can without the ass ending sliding, then take it again and try to make the ass end give out. most drifts unless your pro, are in 3rd and 4th gear, depending on the gearing of the car most pro drifting is done in 4th gear.

130mph drifting would be cool but find someone with the balls and a track to practice it.

the simple question, simple answer part, i PARTLY agree with, but you cant blame people for WONDERING when someone asks such a random question.. and for absolutely NO reason..?


IF it were to come about....?? a grassroots venue with 5th gear entry might just happen to come about???

im sorry but NO.
